Description

This Trichocereus peruvianus clone cutting is a clone of the Australian cacti from SAB forum member _e_. Unfortunately, this all the information we have on the origination of the two Red Spine plants. Both #1 and #2 have short red spines, padded white areoles and vibrant green bodies.

Differences we have noticed are whether Red Spine #1 is grown inside or outside it displays redder spines on new growth than #2. The spines of #2 seem to turn more honey brown on our outdoor grown plants.

Peruvianus’s, also known as Peruvian Torch, are a columnar cactus native to the western slope of the Andes in Peru, between about 2,000–3,000 m above sea level. Typical peruvianus traits are a frosted blue colour with six to nine ribs. It can grow up to 4m tall and 20cm in diameter.

The size and colour of the spines vary greatly, but most of them have about 6-8 honey-coloured to brown spines that can reach about 4cm in length. The areoles are brown to beige and up to 2.5cm distanced from each other. The spines do not have a knobbed base and some have a distinct V-Notch above the areoles, but not all so it´s not a trait that is reliable for identification.

 

Your cutting needs to be callused before being ready for planting.

Leave to dry for several days prior to planting. Cactus species are among the easiest plants to root at home. The process works any time of year, but cactus cuttings potted in late summer to early autumn root fastest.

Fill an adequately sized pot with a half half mixture of high quality potting mix and perlite. The potting mix should consist of well composted pine bark and large particles, this ensures air flow to the roots and good drainage. Do not water until roots have formed.
